It doesn’t take long to realize that the world around is getting more and more negative. When you listen to the talking heads, pundits and political activist who constantly complain about what they don’t like or how think things should be, you realize the negative content of their rhetoric.  As Christians if we take in too much of this constant barrage of negativity, we too will begin to become negative toward all things around us.  Certainly we should be concerned about the course our world culture is taking. We must spend a sufficient time in biblical prayer for the world around us, because only God can effective redirect the course of our culture. All the complaining in the world will not set things in the right direction.

We must have a consistent diet of God’s word and a limited diet of the negative content of society. We must be careful who and what we listen too and see, remember we walk by faith and not by sight.  We must put a guard around our eye and ear gates along with our heart, so as to allow only positive inflow.  Remember, out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

Remember it is the truth you know and walk in that sets you free.
